|I was not looking for all the alternatives to RCD. However, one of the links pointed to a gem. Here it is quoted to close out this case:|
Had the same problem, now fixed
I've had this problem ever since getting a new laptop from work. I tried RDP on my home network from an XP machine, or from 2 android devices like i had been able to do previously. The new machine is a windows 7 64 bit laptop. Whenever i would connect via RDP over wireless as soon as I logged in the wireless connection would drop. Confirmed this via pings to and from the remote machine.
I connected the laptop to a wired connection and RDP'd to the IP address i assigned to wired interface and got in without a problem. I then noticed that the wifi had dropped like it had previously. I relaunched the wifi connection from within the RDP session and was prompted for my network's security key. I thought this was strange since my user profile already had that saved. Once I entered the key I was able to connect to wifi. I disconnected the wired ethernet connection, and then successfully connected via RDP to the wireless ip address for the first time! Looks like something must be different with a RDP user profile and one locally logged in. The remote profile didn't have the wifi security key saved and explains why when switching to this user would kill the connection. .dgibb2000 1st Sep 2011
